Mileage of Bajaj Pulsar 220
This Pulsar 220 has been driven for over 1,45,000 km making it quite old. Also, the YouTuber has done some modifications to the bike which might result in higher fuel consumption than the average motorcycle. For this test, he emptied the fuel tank by driving the bike until it stooped. After that, he went to the petrol pump and filled petrol in a container worth Rs 10. Since this video was shot in January 2021, the fuel prices were not that high. Hence, he was able to get around 120 ml of fuel. He connected his bottle of fuel with the carburettor and began his journey.

During the course of his journey, he stayed on the highway. However, he didn’t drive around the optimal 60 km/h, which is where most automobiles give the best mileage in the lightest gear. He drove the bike a bit fast at times too. In fact, the speedometer of the bike during the entire trip was visible. He was hitting around 70-80 km/h and braking often due to undulations on the road. So, one could consider this close to real-world driving the mileage to be normal too. He finally stopped when the bike was dead in response to the throttle input.

At the time and place of this video, the YouTuber considered the price of the fuel to be Rs 80 km/l. So, keep that in mind before drawing conclusions. Also, we must mention that you should not drive bikes like this without fuel because it could cause long-term damage to the components.
